Caprolactam Market Share to Reach USD 19.27 Billion by the year 2026, at a CAGR of 5.4%

A variety of users across various end-use industries has fuelled the demand for this market. Nylon 6 fibers are becoming more popular because of their unique properties like being lightweight, heat, and fatigue resistance coupled with high tensile elastic strength.

Caprolactam Market Size – USD 12.6 Billion in 2018, Market Growth – CAGR of 5.4%, Market Trends – Product launches, and research for advanced caprolactam options.

According to the current analysis of Reports and Data, the global Caprolactam Market was valued at USD 12.6 billion in 2018 and is expected to reach USD 19.27 billion by the year 2026, at a CAGR of 5.4%. Caprolactam is a cyclic amide or lactam of caproic acid. Nylon 6, which is an extensively used synthetic polymer, is the raw material used in Caprolactam. It is a colorless organic compound that is manufactured using three different sources, such as cyclohexane, phenol, and toluene. Cyclohexane is the most prominent source used for fabricating caprolactam. Its mechanical properties such as being lightweight and high strength make it the best choice of material to produce nylon fiber and resins. Another added benefit in production of caprolactam is that its manufacturing plant requires less technical complexity along with low initial investment in its infrastructure which has encouraged new participants to enter the market.

Key players of this industry are Advansix Inc., Alpek S.A.B. de C.V., BASF SE, Capro Corp, DOMO Caproleuna GmbH, Grupa Azoty, Gujarat State Fertilizers & Chemicals Limited, Highsun Group, KuibyshevAzot PJSC, Fertilizers & Chemicals Travancore Ltd, Juhua Group Corp., Lanxess AG, Sumitomo Chemical Co. Ltd, Toray Industries, Inc., and UBE Industry Group are investing a lot in research and development to bring in innovations to carve a niche market for themselves and get an advantage over their competitors.
